Sex and The City TV Nudity

Based on the book of the same name by Candace Bushnell, Sex and the City follows the personal and professional lives of four 30-something plus women in New York City. SATC was one of the first shows with explicitly sexual content, featuring both explicit sex scenes and scenes of women talking explicitly

about sex. It resonated with women around the world, as it examined issues women commonly experienced in their relationships, but perhaps never talked about publicly. Men have even credited the show for giving insight into the female perspective on sex and relationships.

Many of the graphic sex scenes featured self-proclaimed "try-sexual" Samantha Jones. While actress Kim Cattral often exposed her breasts for the camera, nudity in some of the more explicitly sexual scenes was often hidden by undergarments and carefully-placed bedsheets. In one memorable scene, Samantha planned to greet her boyfriend with perfectly appointed sushi covering her private parts.

At some point, all of the women except for Sarah Jessica Parker (whose contract stipulated no nudity), exposed their breasts for the show. There were also plenty of male bare bottoms shown throughout the series.
